$335,000,000 FOR STD PREVENTION IN ECONOMIC STIMULUS BILL

Democrats may have eliminated provisions on birth control and sod for the National Mall in the "job stimulus" -- but buried on page 147 of the bill is stimulation for prevention of sexually transmitted diseases!

The House Democrats' bill includes $335 million for sexually transmitted disease education and prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.

In the past, the CDC has used STD education funding for programs that many Members of Congress find objectionable and arguably unrelated to a mission of economic stimulus [such as funding events called 'Booty Call' and 'Great Sex' put on by an organization that received $698,000 in government funds.]

"Whether this funding has merit is not the question; the point is it has no business in an economic plan supposedly focused on job creation," says a stimulated Hill source.

I am getting more and more sick daily listening to all of this.

If, and thats a big if, I have children they and us will be trying to pay for all of this forever.

From the banks, to the auto, to the stimulus plan.....unreal.

What's the big deal here? $335 Million is a pittance of a $825 Billion bill. And can any of you honestly say that a drop in the bucket isn't worth being dedicated to AIDS prevention and education?

Yeah, transparency doesn't work unless people take things in context.

This is an economic stimulus bill, not a social bill ... the AIDS prevention/education funds should NOT be included in this. Yeah, you know what that say ... $335 million here and $335 million there and pretty soon we're talking about real money!
